What Is Performance Art?
Performance Art is continually reinterpreted and redefined within varying social climates throughout history. It’s an ever- evolving medium. A performance is a moment or an experience that customarily happens once and is never repeated. The audience becomes apart of the performance and acts as the witness to the experience whereas the photograph, the film or video documentation is only a rendering of that particular time and space. The rapid growth and accessibility of new media, information and technology are changing the very meanings and interpretations of performance art, from generation to generation.
